#251 of 262 2010 Ford Expedition XLT Shifts Hard
Jun 17, 2013 (2:56 pm)
My husband and I just bought a 2010 Expedition XLT at a government auction. We really like the vehicle but I am concerned because at times, particularly when climbing hills, it seems to shift really rough. My husband thinks this shuttering upon shifting is normal for this vehicle, but I'm not so sure. Is it a normal or a problem? If it is a problem, what is the most likely cause. Thank you!

Shuddering on shifting isn't normal. You should have it checked out, and if you think it is really the trans have it flushed, and the filter changed. Coils going bad will also feel like a trans problem as they misfire. A dealer can pull pending codes on that.

I have a 2007 Ford Expedition 2WD with 133k miles. The transmission seems to be slipping or lurching at high speed. It is not the kind of slip that seems dangerous, but it causes the truck to seemingly delay or lurch. It is an annoyance at minimum and I am concerned there is a major problem. Please advise at to what it might be. Could it be the same TV cable issue as the 2003 Expedition? Thanks.

My 1999 Expedition just started this. It has about 147,000 miles on it. I checked the build and it is full and clean. Can you please help me by letting me know what you found out to be the problem causing your issue and what you did to fix it. Thanks

My 1999 Expedition just started jerking/bucking as I give it gas. Most noticeable when starting up a hill giving gas and when the cruise is set to maintain current speed. Seems to be a retrain issue due to the RPM's don't change and I don't feel the transmission slipping. Anyone with answers please help.

I AM NOT SURE IF YOU STILL HAVE THE PROBLEM BUT...
If you are i can asure you that $16.00 will fix it, just go to your local auto motive store and ask for a MANUAL KIT for AIR SUSSPENSION it is very easy to install i did mine in under 1/2 an hour, or you can unplug the compressor located under the windshield washer fluid and hook up a wire to both RED/Black then hook em up to ur battery it will manual overide any switches that may be broken. if it still does not work then like i said go get the manual kit is cheapest. Another thing you can do is jack your truck up of its wheels and let them hang for a day, this will refill them. All this i have learned from my own Ezpedition 4wd 5.4 - 1999 V8 GOOD LUCK ----------

Check your fuel filter, often can get clogged AKA not enough gas when you go at higher RPM's.
Check the battery connection/ i have had my car stall because of this dont ask me how bec idk either.
Check your fuel, when u go up hills could be that...
If it still continues or gets worse it could be your fuel pump is going out or...fuel pressure regulator.
These are the cheapest things to check and fix, if it continues id ask your local mechanic would be prob 100-200$ to scan truck for problems?

What happens when you click off the overdrive while this is happening? My guess would be a coil going bad.

It will continue doing but not as often or as hard as it does with overdrive on. When it first started doing this and I turned the overdrive off it only jerked when the hill was very steap or you gave it gas very hard and quick. How can I verify its a coil? And its location?

If I'm not mistaken there are two coil packs on a 99, each serving 4 cylinders. Newer ones have 8 coils, one on each plug. To verify it is a coil pack you can get it scanned for pending codes - the misfires will show up there. While not enough to trigger the CEL, they will be in the on board data.
